dA is Not Selling Your Works to Third Party Royalty Free Hot Topic selling artist's works without permission
A Tumblr post has been circulating, where Hot Topic is selling artist's works as T-shirts in their store, including popular fan art without the artist's permission, deviant artists included. It caught on wildfire when one user linked to deviantART's Submission Policy, stating users gave permission to dA by agreeing to their Terms of Service thereby allowing dA to sell it to third party royalty free.
This is false and inaccurate!

Animals, Plants, & Nature Week Hello reader!
I am Nelleke (https://www.deviantart.com/nelleke), and I was asked to write an article about forest photography. Which is my favorite subject of photography! There is something about them that is timeless. Of course there's a reason forests get used so much as a backdrop in stories and movies... They can give you the feeling something magical is waiting just around the corner.
In this article I will discuss several points, some a bit longer than others. They are Composition, Conditions, Equipment and Editing.
You might have seen a beautiful forest scene once, but noticed after taking a picture that it looks ver
Lace looked at the love potion and the charm in front of him. He decided it would be better to use both of them. He was not sure if the normal doses for humans would work on him. From his observations, the other students were strongly affected by emotions while he was not. He carefully liked people and trusted them and could be wary of others. But concepts like "love" or "hate" were a mystery to him. He knew what fear was, or at least he believed he knew. It occurred to the weaver that his emotions seem to be weaker compared to the other students. When Orielle or Lucy were happy, their voice changed, they smiled, and were even more friendly t

Patujis sapne pabudo ir pasakojo, kad sapnavo, jog buvo tarakonas, kuris sapnavo, kad buvo traktor
Vienąkart Veikėjas ėjo keliu per lauką ir pastebėjo į kažkokius virbus įsipainiojusią voverę. Jis išpainiojo žvėrelį, o tada voverė prašneko ir tarė:
- Tu man padėjai, už tai išpildysiu vieną tavo norą. Beje, noro išpildyti daugiau norų pateikti negalima, tada nieko išvis negausi. Prašom nesukčiauti.
Veikėjas nenustebo, kad voverė kalba, ir susimąstė (kas šiaip turėtų būt įtartina, nes visiems žinoma, kad voverės nekalba). Kaip žinote, vaikai, normal&
Lace had never gotten a gift before. Weavers were not gifting for the sake of making the other happy. If a weaver was giving something to another weaver without being asked to do so, it always happened because they were convinced the other was going to need it one day.
But now Lucy had given Lace a sweatshirt. The young apprentice had of course bleached it before he put it on and fortunately, Lucy had not minded it. It was not that Lace didn't like colours. He had no preferences when it came to colours, actually. But he wore grey because he was a weaver. Only masters of the guild wore colours and those colours indicated their speciality. But
Ji pakilo ir išėjo. Įėjo į mišką, kurio ligi tol niekada nebuvo. Kuo toliau ėjo, tuo aiškiau matė, kad kyla kalnas (kurio prieš tai irgi niekada nebuvo). Ant kalno stovėjo pilis. Ji nusišypsojo, nes pilis buvo panaši į tas, kurios būdavo rodomos siaubo filmuose. „Dabar kaip išlįs koks vampyras!“ - pamanė Ji ir net garsiai susijuokė, nes tokiom nesąmonėm netikėjo.
O štai jau ir durys. Ji nė kiek nesvyruodama įėjo vidun. Tamsiame kaip katakomba koridoriuje telkšojo kraujo balos, ant sienų
- Jie iš mūsų nesityčios! - pareiškė ponas E.
Ir susimąstė. Kas tie jie? Ir kas tie mes? Didžiuliame kambaryje buvo tik ponas E. ir kėdė. Daugiau nebuvo nieko. Ir pastate, kuriame buvo šis kambarys, daugiau nebuvo nieko. Ir lauke, kuriame stovėjo šis pastatas, kiek tik akis užmatė, daugiau nebuvo nieko.
Ponas E. nuvertė kėdę ir išėjo.
Kurį laiką paėjęs pagalvojo, kad gal visgi kėdės nuversti nederėjo. Apsisuko ir grįžo atgal.
- Hmmm... - tarė ponas E. ir
Last year I had some spare reading time from other challengers and remembered this one. So I made a new goal to finish and be done with it (so I wouldn't have to write about my reading habits in art site).
This is continuation from few years ago.
For more updates on my reads, please find me on GoodReads (username is the same as here on DeviantArt).

This year I will be continuing my reading challenge from last year, updating only those categories, which have no entries so far. So I won't spam you, my dear watchers, too often (especially with 'Book you own but never read') :P
And I am not going to post any new reading challenges after finishing this. If you would still be interested to know, what I am reading, you can find me on GoodReads (username is the same as here on DeviantArt). Sometimes I add book reviews on that site, but so far they are all in Lithuanian. If I read the book in English, might write review in English. But so far most of my reads are in Lithuanian.

Reading Challenge 2015
I am not going to read all of these books in one year. For me it is more like lifetime goal. I just need this to motivate myself into reading something not usual for me
If the same book fits more than one category, I will write it at all of them. (No, it's not cheating in order to finish challenge faster. At least I don't consider it as this :D)
